You will need:
-The lamp fixture that you screw the bulb/emitter into
-The ceramic heat emitter, appropriate wattage for the lamp fixture
-The thermostat, this will turn the CHE on and off to regulate the temp
-A digital thermometer to keep an eye on it just in case something starts working funny.

I believe you plug the thermostat into the wall, the lamp into the thermostat, the CHE into the lamp, and adjust the temp to what you want it to be consistently. Turn it on and it should work perfectly! I actually have not used a thermostat before so I'm a bit unsure as to how that works.

Hope that helps a bit :)

If you go to Home Depot or Lowes (home improvement stores), you can get lamp fixtures for very cheap. I buy the ones that look like silver domes (they aren't painted black) and have always used these for my herp setups. I think the size I get costs $4.99.

The thermostats are always expensive, and usually the CHEs. I haven't found any place that sells them much lower, online they are a bit less but then you pay shipping.
